Randolph R. Pearsall ’78

Rand Pearsall graduated with a B.A. in English and then earned the college’s first M.A. awarded in American studies while also serving as Trinity’s sports information director and assistant varsity soccer coach. After a year in pro soccer as public relations director for the Hartford Hellions, Pearsall began a long career in advertising, representing leading brands from Unilever, Nabisco, Minolta, Noxell, Canon, and Toyota. He then founded Oasis Advertising in 1993—successfully launching Toyota’s Prius in the United States—and built Oasis to a $60 million agency before it was acquired by global ad giant Dentsu. Later, he joined BASF to head up North American marketing communications and to lead global communications for the largest acquisition in the company’s history. Pearsall also has served as trustee for the Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation. He now runs Global Problem Solvers, Ltd., a marketing and advertising consultancy in New Jersey that specializes in international clients.
